Just A Reminder

I’m not blogging here with the frequency I used to due to some serious time constraints. However, I would invite you to check out my other blog that features shorter posts, fewer rants, and links on a variety of different subjects.

GeoCities R.I.P.

To his credit, @zachwamp requested these meetups himself in a message to @bluecollarmuse on Twitter. I think this is important for two reasons. First of all, it says to me […]
